David Priest

I found endurance sports following many years playing football in high school and college.  I competed in collegiate triathlon during veterinary school while developing a passion for cycling and exercise physiology.  My veterinary education provided a strong background in exercise physiology that I further developed with research in performance horses.  Following veterinary school I moved to the Santa Ynez Valley in California to practice veterinary medicine and pursue road racing.  I spent 4 years training and racing with a power meter while translating my equine exercise physiology education into cycling training knowledge.  I am also a professional bike mechanic and complete bike geek.  My ideal day is a good ride in the mountains, followed by a good meal and an afternoon spent fixing bikes for other cyclists.
